If you're a Nikon fan looking to snap up a new full-frame mirrorless camera, you don't really need to wait for Black Friday 2021 to come around. That's because Amazon Australia is celebrating Nikon Week right now with some excellent discounts on Nikon's best Z-series cameras, including the Mark II models of the Z7 and Z6.

The Z-series full-framers aren't the only Nikon cameras discounted – they just happen to be ones we're most excited about. You can score the entry-level Nikon D3500 twin-lens DSLR kit for 25% off (or just AU$749), for example, or the APS-C format Nikon Z50 twin-lens kit for AU$1,571.65 (or 25% off). There are even some great Z-mount lenses that are discounted the best ones have just 16% off – still nothing to scoff at surely.

On cameras, though, there's up to a whopping 42% off on right now, although buyer beware that not all of them are shipped and sold directly by Amazon Australia. Some of the cameras are being sold by third-party resellers on the platform. If you're comfortable with that, chances are you'll get an even bigger discount.

That said, some of the Z series cameras being sold by Amazon AU carry an additional promotion: kits bought between now and October 31 are eligible for cashback of up to AU$300 from Nikon. All you have to do is register your product with the My Nikon Life website. This includes AU$100 cashback on the Nikon Z50 kit mentioned above.

We've made a note of the additional promotions in our picks of the full-frame mirrorless offers below.

Why choose Nikon?

It might have taken Nikon a while to sort out its mirrorless range, but the camera maker's Z-series now has some of the best mirrorless cameras you can get right now. Admittedly it's still lagging behind Sony and Canon, but they're full-featured powerhouses on their own.

Moreover, if you take advantage of these discounts, they're also a lot more affordable than any full-framer from its competition. That's value for money right there.

And then there's the Z-series Nikkor lenses to pair with the above cameras. Nikon has been adding to the stable over the last few years to now include zooms, macros and primes across several focal lengths. If you're an existing Nikon full-frame DSLR user, you can even use your old lenses with an FTZ adapter and save yourself a ton of cash. That said, there are advantages to using native lenses, like AF speed for example.

So if you're not keen on waiting for Black Friday to roll round, then take advantage of these discounts on Amazon right now.
